Grilled Veggies with Broccoli
Bunch of cherry tomatoes
Half of a broccoli head
2 Chinese eggplants
Handful of sunflower seeds (optional)
Grill or bake eggplants and onion gently glazed in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Cut grilled veggies into big pieces, slice broccoli, cut tomatoes in half and place everything into serving plate. If you want, sprinkle with sunflower seeds. This dish is good to serve right away as well as to let stand for a few hours
Beans: Italian Style
This is one of my favourites due to its easiness and the speed of preparing.
Handful of beans, either green or yellow
1-2 cloves of garlic
Salt , pepper, olive oil
You can either steam beans for 3-4 minutes or boil them for 1-2 minutes. Drain them, add crushed garlic right on top, then salt and pepper. Pour 1 table spoon of olive oil and mix everything with your hands.
